Reports have surfaced that streaming giant Netflix has ordered a ten-episode run of Everything Sucks!, a “period dramedy” starring actor Jahi Winston.
Winston, who shined as the young Ralph Tresvant in BET’s smash docuseries The New Edition Story, will co-star in the new series with Peyton Kennedy of The Captive. The show, set in 1996 Oregon, is centered around two groups of high school misfits trying to navigate the awkward days of their teenage years.
“We’re looking forward to spending some time back in the ’90s,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix. “Whether you were in A/V, drama, sports or band, we think everyone will find something to relate to in this coming of age story about the one thing that sucks above everything else—high school.”
We’re looking forward to see young Jahi receive more opportunities to show his acting chops. Read the press release in its entirety here.
